It's been a while....

....but I needed it.  I hope it hasn't been too long.  After the move from the old blog, I needed to take a break and focus on me.  I'm sorry I didn't let you know, it just happened.  But now I am back, bright and happy, and trying my darndest to get into the Christmas spirit.  Are you struggling this year too? 

Well, the tree is up, the lights are on the house, and the candles are in the windows yet I still can't seem to get into it.  I even watched my all-time favorite Christmas movie Elf.  Love Elf!  "I'm singing/I'm in a store/and I'm siiiiiingiiiiing!/I'm in a store/and I'm siiiiiingiiiiing!"..... I digress.  Okay, but I still can't get into it.  Maybe I miss my family, I know I miss snow, but maybe it's consumerism that has gotten the best of me.  I just can't get into Christmas.  Ugh.  My favorite holiday and I can't wrap my arms around it and tell it how much I love it.  So, I am sitting here with a mug of Candy Cane tea, hoping that will help.  And I think I will do some crafting of gifts tomorrow- that should do the trick too.  There, I am feeling better already!

What do you do to get into the spirit when you feel zapped?
